It's about time Kid Icarus made it's way on the eShop! Up until now, you could only get it through the preorder bonus (which wasn't offered in Canada) or by buying a code from Gamestop.
I'm really not liking these practices. They're entirely anti-consumer.
I think I have "I Must Run" as a PSP mini through PSN+. I should probably give it a go, before probably deleting it forever. I hate these randomly generated running games. And yet the non-randomly generated ones like Bit.Trip Runner or Wonder Boy can be so good!
@VofEscaflowne Dinosaur Office is the only video I've ever watched on Nintendo Video, and I thought it was kinda funny.
I'm getting sick of NOA's crap though. 3D Classics Kid Icarus, a game that many of us already own and has been available at GameStop for a month, is the week's big release and we still haven't had a Game Boy game since what, early March? February maybe? It's ridiculous.
The last Game Boy game was Maru's Mission on February 9.
If I were in some sort of journalistic position to actually ask them what's up, I would. A lot of old-school gamers want a chance to relive the classics, or discover games they didn't get to play (like Gargoyle's Quest for me).
Why shouldn't they? If there were more than a game released every two and a half months, maybe they wouldn't complain. But the last GB (or GBC, for that matter) title released in NA was in February, and it wasn't exactly the best game in the world either.
I hope you're right. I'd download the Kid Icarus GB game in a heartbeat since I never played it when it originally dropped.
